“Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This place is definitely a treat! Handmade sugar cones and ice cream. Specialty flavors for fall are pumpkin pie and apple pie. Tastes just like the real thing!

“Not worth the line”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Good ice cream, good service, but the line is always insane! There's a nice little frozen yogurt place across the street and also another place that serves ice cream across the street. That's where I ended up going this time when I saw the line.

This is a really, really good ice cream shop! It is located in the historic district, close to the riverwalk.

“Salted caramel ice cream is decadent”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

I had avoided going in Kilwin's when I was downtown on the waterfront because (1) there was always a long line outside (2) I thought it was a chain and couldn't be very good and (3) I was usually too full to try any of their sweets because I had already stuffed myself somewhere else. But one warm weekend night recently, my friend and I were strolling the watefront, had not eaten a large meal, and there was only a short line at Kilwin's. Voila! The perfect opportunity to indulge in a large scoop of homemade ice cream. I chose the salted caramel ice cream packed into a homemade waffle cone. One scoop is more than enough; the ice cream is very rich. To me the salted caramel ice cream offered just the right balance of sweet, salty, creamy luciousness to satisfy any cravings I had. The people dipping the ice cream are happy to give you a sample to taste if you can't decide which flavor to try. I suggest you try Kilwin's some time when there is not a long line snaking out the door.
